The Danaya group is composed of 4 married women with an average age of 33 and, on average, 3 children, who mostly live in nuclear family settings in the Massabla Coura district of Bougouni town. They got to know each other thanks to neighbourly and business relationships, and friendships. In order to strengthen their financial capacity so that they can better do business, the members of the group decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution and are on their 7th loan. The 6 preceeding loans were correctly repaid. The women in the group sell cups, clothing and various other items.

Maimouna, the group leader, is the woman sitting in front wearing a reddish pagne (colourful West African dress). She sells cups made from foil, thermoses and all sorts of plastic items and plans to use her loan to buy 20 dozen foil cups and 10 dozen thermos cups from the wholesalers in Bamako. She makes her sales at the market and door-to-door to her retail clientèle, essentially made up of women, for cash or credit. She expects to make an average monthly profit of 60 000 francs which will be reinvested in her business and used to repay her loan.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
